There are many different dessert options out there but two that come to mind what I think of something delicious are apple pies and cheesecake. Each of them may be different and they have their own particular place on the dessert menu. Cheesecake is fantastic because of the texture and the creamy deliciousness that it provides. Apple pie is nostalgic, delicious and makes us think about the autumn of the year.
Although these two different desserts can be enjoyed at any occasion, when they come together in this unique recipe, they are over-the-top delicious. It is an upside down cheesecake Apple pie and once you try your first bite, you are going to be hooked forever. Make this for your family but be sure you make enough. This is one desserts where everyone will go back for seconds.
